Linet's Group's story

Pictured above is Linet, who, as a group leader, is representing her group formed by 7 farmers in Lugari District, Kenya. She is a mother to 7 children and is known by her community as a very resourceful person.

Initially, Linet joined One Acre Fund in 2014 because she wanted to have access to quality training and acquire new farming methods. Since she joined the program she says that her life has improved, especially because she has been able to consistently feed her family. With the profits from the upcoming harvesting season, Linet plans to send her children to school.

Among the 7 farmers in Linet's Group, a total of 6 acres of land will be planted using the maize seeds and fertilizer received with the loan. Additionally, some of the farmers in the group will be purchasing a solar light so, with this loan, the group will also receive a total of 3 solar lights.
